However, one feature I was really looking forward to, that does not
be in the F9 pre-release is an option in the applet to manually rescan for
wireless networks. Sometimes (for whatever reason), my router is not seen
during the first scan, and I have to restart the service to rescan for it.
Would be nice to have a manual rescan in the menu of the applet.
I would like this feature too.
One other thing I noticed was that occasionally (rarely), nm-applet
for my WPA2 password right after login, even though it is saved. Rather
than typing in my password, I hit cancel, and select my network from the
dropdown list, which it connects to perfectly fine (without password
request). The only thing I can assume is happening is that in these
circumstances, NetworkManager is trying to connect to the network too soon
after login, and wherever the password is stored is not yet unlocked.
Yes, this happens to me too, usually after resuming from suspend or
hibernate. It would be nice if there was some way NM could wait for a
"settle period" or retry several times before giving up and putting
up the dialog.
